{Recipe} ~ Mini Shrimp Rolls

Y'all! This recipe is divine. It'll be best devoured during summer, preferably near sand and waves.

But seeing as it's winter, I had to improvise. I made these adorable shrimp rolls for our seafood extravaganza on New Year's Eve. At least 4 people asked me for the recipe and they were gobbled up before I could go back for seconds thirds!

Mini Shrimp Rolls
from Bon Appetit


Ingredients

  • Kosher salt
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled, deveined
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 small celery stalk, peeled, finely chopped (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 24 mini soft dinner rolls (I used King's Hawaiian)
  • 1/ 4cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup celery leaves or crushed potato chips

Preparation

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; season lightly with salt. When water is at a gentle simmer, add shrimp. Poach until just opaque in the center, 2–4 minutes. Drain; transfer shrimp to a medium bowl of ice water to cool. Drain; wipe out bowl.
 
Whisk mayonnaise, celery, chives, oil, lemon juice, and horseradish in a medium bowl to blend; season to taste with salt and pepper. Chop shrimp into small pieces (about 1/3-inch); add to bowl with mayonnaise mixture. Stir to coat. DO AHEAD Shrimp salad can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
 
Preheat oven to 375°. Using a small serrated knife, make a 1/2-inch-deep cut across the top of each dinner roll and gently pry open roll with your fingers to create a mini New England–style hot dog bun. Lightly brush inside of rolls with butter; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast until light golden, about 8 minutes. Let cool slightly.
 
Divide shrimp mixture among rolls, pressing into cut across top; garnish with celery leaves or crushed potato chips.
